PlayPointe (http://www.playpointe.com) today announces the release of Head in the Clouds – Jack & Abby Dream of the Circus, an Augmented Reality Coloring Book for children. This unique book inspires young children as it leaps off the page and takes you into the wonderful circus dreams of Jack and Abby. This first-of-its-kind book will be the jumping-off point to help children develop fine motor skills, joint attention, and language skills, all while engaging in purposeful, fun play.

“We saw a need in the marketplace for an imaginative, interactive book that motivates children. Our twelve interactive animations immerse children in a story of two children dreaming of the circus. The book comes to life right in front of them through marker based Augmented Reality, said PlayPointe’s Founder and CEO, Sarah Jackson. “Your child is no longer just reading a book, they become a part of it, as they color the pages and see the animations the way they colored them.” Head in the Clouds Book Video
